Who Is at Risk for Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis can affect anyone, and in many cases, its exact cause is unknown. With that said, having one or more of the following risk factors can increase a person’s chances of developing this condition:

  • Having flat feet or high arches
  • Using improper walking techniques
  • Being between the ages of 40 and 60
  • Being obese
  • Standing or walking for extended periods of time
  • Engaging in activities that exert stress on the heels (e.g., running and dancing)

Why It’s Important to Seek Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

If plantar fasciitis is left untreated, it can lead to chronic heel pain. Many people adjust the way they walk to account for this pain, which can in turn cause back, hip, knee, and foot problems. As such, if you’re experiencing the plantar fasciitis symptoms mentioned above, it’s important that you promptly consult with an orthopedic specialist.
